SIGN THE PETITION
CREATE DECENT HOMES AT REASONABLE COSTS FOR ALL IN PLACER COUNTY
Nearly 42% of Placer County households are strapped by housing costs. Whether renting or buying, families are getting priced out of our communities. It’s our firefighters, schoolteachers, bank tellers and trade workers. They are us, our neighbors and vital to the stability of our workforce and economy.
We are facing a serious gap in housing. According to the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG), Placer County needs 21,000+ new units of attainable housing by 2021. But as of the most recent County Housing Needs Assessment Progress Report, less than 4% of these units have been built.
Our economy depends on a strong, local workforce. When we support accessible housing, we’re helping to secure the economy by:
Retaining and attracting skilled, local workers
Increasing buying power of local residents
Improving the health of our community
Creating a family friendly environment
